Views Plans

Jordan is an Arab nation on the east bank of the Jordan River. Within its borders are ancient monuments, nature reserves and seaside resorts. It’s home to the famed archaeological site of Petra, or “Rose City”, which sits in a narrow valley with tombs, temples and monuments carved into the surrounding pink sandstone cliffs.

Before you begin your journey, you’ll want to plan for any unexpected medical event or other issues. This is where travel insurance comes in.

Travel Insurance is Mandatory

To enter Jordan you are required to have medical travel insurance (Not required for Jordanian nationals).

VisitorsCoverage can help determine the best coverage options once you have your travel plans, length of stay, and the ages of all travelers. You can compare plans side by side with our comparison tool. We have travel medical plans with emergency medical evacuation, comprehensive insurance, and more. We also have plans that cover the Covid-19 requirements.

For American residents traveling from the U.S., should you need to cancel, postpone or cut short your original travel plans for any reason, including COVID-19 related issues, trip insurance with Cancel for Any Reason (CFAR) insurance may be a better option. We also have International Travel Medical Insurance plans for non-U.S. residents.
